A/W 14 Wishlist







I haven't done a wishlist post in forever! But Autumn is my absolute favourite season (confessions of a coat lover) so I am extremely excited to see the first few pieces trickling in. This is definitely the first of many wishlist, roll on payday!

Blue Cigarette









Hat - Topshop Vest - Zara Trousers - Glamorous Sandals - Topshop

I bought these trousers from a shop whilst on holiday in North Wales, if your Pwllheli bound it's called Urban Coast. I recognised Glamorous from many a trawl on Asos but didn't realise how great it was for the taller of us, these cigarette pants are actually the right length which ,if your also verging the 5.11" mark, you'll know that's quite hard to come by. They are such a gorgeous shade of baby blue so I threw on my go to black basics so not to shock myself with too much colour (I'm trying though!)

Pin Stripe










Two Piece - Made by Me Shirt - Vintage Boots - Topshop Watch - Asos

This two piece is my latest little project and I'm quite pleased with the outcome. I saw the Lolita sets in American Apparel and loved the fabric but just thought I could make a version that fits me better for a lot less money. I just shoved a shirt over the top since I wasn't brave enough to bare the back as well as the legs

Beach










Jumper - Zara Shirt - Paul Smith Shorts - Asos Bag - Vintage

Sorry for the silence, I've just come back from YNOT festival and then travelled to North Wales so feeling a little spaced out! I was a terrible blogger at the festival as I didn't take a single decent photo apart from on my disposable camera. When I develop it there will be lots of pictures on Instagram (so please follow!). I really could rant on about HOW GOOD the music was particularly Catfish and the Bottlemen and Tom Vek but I think I might sound boring. 

Anyway, here's a little look from the beach, it's still warm enough to have the ol' legs out and these shorts have pretty much been glued to my body the whole summer!

Off and Off







Top - DIY Shorts - Asos Hat - Topshop Boots - Topshop Bag - Vintage

A few days a go I came across this DIY from one of the best DIY blogs A Pair and a Spare. I am not one for tight jersey which every single off the shoulder top tends to be so this easy breezy top is so perfect. It's a clever little idea to make the sleeves and top separate so your arms are not glued to your side. I made it in a simple cheese cloth so it is so nice to wear on sweltering day - if you are new to sewing this is such an easy project to have a go at.

Summer leather








Shirt Dress - Topshop Shorts - American Apparel Bralet - DIY Sandals - Topshop (old)

Oh my, this humid weather is doing nothing for the frizz, I feel like a lion at the moment! I am wearing a leather bralet (which you can by made to measure on my depop @aforvogue) underneath and stuck to everything, still I am determined to make summer leather work! 

I am off to Ynot festival next weekend and trying my hardest not to look like a festival cliché but I don't think I can go without wellies...

Men Only








Shirt - Paul Smith Bralet - Topshop Jeans - Zara Bag - Vintage

I think mens shirts are a million times better than womens. This one is from Paul Smith on a recent trip to Bicester Village and it is such beautiful fabric and the A -Line shape is so perfect, so much better than form fitting womens ones which if you buy them oversized just make me look frumpy. The little printed collar just tops this off, you will be seeing lots more of this little shirt I promise
